Duet: Banana Bread / Avett Brothers “The Carpenter”

The food: Almost every week, we buy a bunch of bananas … and almost every week we have at least a few that get too ripe before we eat them. Instead of wasting the overdone fruit, I use them in bread. After all, other than the bananas, this recipe uses baking staples everyone typically has in the pantry (cheap!). Banana bread is one of my favorite things, so[…]

Duet: Salsa for Canning / Lost Highway

The food: This year, we planted a pretty large raised-bed garden (it’s about 6 x 18-feet) and our six tomato plants yielded a decent crop. There was no way we could eat them all while they were fresh, so we had to learn a thing or two about canning. We decided to make several batches each of salsa and pasta sauce.

Yep, I got to meet the band in question after a show (more on that in a minute), and I asked them what they would eat while listening to their album. How better to decide a perfect pairing? Their request was this (oddly specific) meal and a beer. I[…]

Duet: Glazed Strawberry Scones / Hilary Scott “Flowers on Mars”

The food: I’m not a big fan of scones. Most of the ones I’ve tried from various coffee shops are too dry for my liking. When it comes to baked goods, I prefer ooey-gooey treats. After discovering a glazed berry scone at Panera that I actually love, however, I decided it was time to add these biscuit-like cakes to my baking[…]
